Office based in Leeds, or could be home based, depending on geography

Exploring beautiful places with like-minded people to champion special buildings.

The Local Community Officer will work with communities at 20 chapels owned by the Historic Chapels Trust making new contacts and strengthening relationships with committees to help these special buildings thrive as visitor attractions and venues for events.

Historic chapels have special history and architecture, so sharing their story is a big part of the role. But they also rely on local committees and supporters making the best of them, through concerts, exhibitions, lectures, housekeeping and day to day admin. Many are still used for services, but they have also found other uses, such as a dance school!

We’re looking for candidates who live in the North of the country where half of the chapels are located, but someone who is also keen to travel throughout England and who can make the most of creative relationships to bring a plan together for each chapel.

This post is supported by specialists, so you don’t need a background in historic buildings or places of worship. Instead it represents a fantastic opportunity to get to know lovely places and their communities, and fulfil their interests in using these wonderful sites.
